17 Questions: Bethenny Fills Us In

  •     You’re returning to Real Housewives of New York! Being on the show again will be: “Dynamic. I’m excited to reunite with the people watching. It’s a fresh start!”
  •     Something fun you do for dinner is: “Sushi night. Bryn loves to roll up white rice with edamame with a piece of dry seaweed — it’s just like mommy’s.”

7 Secrets to Make Your Holiday Favorites "Skinny"

  •      “Use whole grain bread for stuffing. Substitute a portion of the butter in the recipe with vegetable stock or chicken stock and white wine.”
  •     “Use bananas and/or applesauce to substitute some of the butter in baking recipes. The applesauce to butter ratio is 1:1. Never remove all the fat—you don't want to sacrifice all the flavor.”
  •     “Substitute some of the fattening ingredients in mashed potatoes, like cream and butter, with buttermilk & low fat sour cream.”
  •     “Also, use a ricer or a sieve by pressing the boiled potatoes through the sieve to make mashed potatoes smoother and more decadent. You can also use a little vegetable or chicken stock here, too.”

“Between running her wildly popular Skinnygirl franchise, authoring various books, and returning to the Real Housewives, Bethenny is one fabulous super mom, and we are so excited to welcome her to Momtastic this month,” said Rebecca Schmitt, Vice President and General Manager of TotallyHer Media. “With her healthy take on classic favorites, she is the perfect Guest Editor to usher us into the holiday season.”
